Leica Q2 - Monochrom
The legendary Leica look
in black and white
The Leica Q2 Monochrom produces brilliant, exceptionally sharp images.
This is due to the new specialized sensor developed exclusively for this camera.
Unlike its chromatic counterparts, the monochrome sensor features no color filter array – with no interpolation required, only the pure light levels are captured and rendered sharper.
Furthermore, the sensor’s 47.3 megapixel resolution is more than capable for even extreme cropping to be an extra tool in the photographer’s arsenal. Digital zoom provides simulated focal lengths of 35, 50 and 75 mm for the JPEGs while the DNG file of the original image is always preserved at full sensor resolution.
Additionally, this unique sensor also boasts significantly broader dynamic range and extremely low image noise, even at high ISOs up to 100,000.
